Mascherano hopes Liverpool ace Torres joins him at Barcelona

Javier Mascherano would love to see former Liverpool teammate Fernando Torres follow him to Barcelona.

But the midfielder wonders whether the Spanish striker would be able to quit the Kop.

Mascherano told The Sun: "Torres is so good, he could play for any club. I'd like to see him at Barca but don't know if that would be possible.

"Liverpool's fans love him so much and he loves them so much too that I don't know if they would be able to part."
